A former English under-21 champion, Chris Wakelin first turned professional in 2013 after emerging from that year’s Q School.

Positive results on his debut season on the main tour were scarce, but Wakelin showed more of his potential during the subsequent 2014/15 campaign.

Despite failing to break into the top 64 in the rankings, the player from Rugby produced a string of strong displays in the PTC Series which helped him receive a fresh two-year card via its order of merit.

Wakelin also featured at the quarter-final stage of a ranking tournament during this term following his run at the Indian Open.

Throughout the next several campaigns, the Englishman did enough to guarantee his tour survival, helped by making three visits to the Crucible Theatre for the World Championship.


But latter-stage appearances in competitions were infrequent, and just three more ranking quarter-finals materialised until 2023.

At that year’s Snooker Shoot Out, however, Wakelin took advantage of the unpredictable format to be the last contender standing.

After making his way beyond the last eight for the first time, a victory over Daniel Wells set up a shot at a maiden piece of silverware.

Wakelin delivered with a terrific tournament-high break of 119 in the final to beat Belgium’s Julien Leclercq.
